Love Is In The Hair1 of 15
By Kelly Mickle
Looking to impress a special someone on Valentine's Day, or just want a new look for date night? From sultry waves to soft, sexy braids, top celebrity stylists reveal how to copy seven runway-inspired hairstyles that are quick, easy and romantic.
Make Waves2 of 15
To get the soft waves at Diane von Furstenberg, begin curling your hair with a 2-inch curling iron starting at the nape area, leaving the ends out, but hold the curling iron more horizontal. Make sure to twist the sections under instead of up and down.
The Final Look3 of 15
"Holding the curling iron vertical creates uneven beachy curls, while twisting under will create more soft, consistent waves," says Suave Professionals celebrity stylist Jenny Cho. "Release the hair and gently pull down on the curl, relaxing it while it's still hot."
Crimp Your Style4 of 15
Want a hairstyle that's a little more dramatic? Opt for tighter, crimped strands, as seen at Anna Sui. "First, apply two to three golf-ball-sized dollops of a creamy mousse, distributing evenly all over the hair," says Cho. This will condition the hair so it stays soft and beautiful.
The Final Look5 of 15
"Next, start braiding individual sections of your hair—about eight to ten sections total—all the way to the ends," says Cho. "Use a diffuser to dry your hair a little so the heat helps set the braids, then go to bed." Wake up the next morning and unwind the braids to reveal soft, crimped locks.
Flower Power6 of 15
Going out for the night? Try this stylish look from Dolce & Gabbana's runway. "Part your hair down the center and begin curling with a 1 1/2-inch curling iron, twisting one section away from the face and the next toward the face—switching back and forth to create texture," says Cho. "Rub a dry shampoo, like Suave Professionals Dry Shampoo, into your hands and apply to hair, breaking up curls with your fingers." Then starting at the nape of your neck, create a low braid and secure with an elastic.
The Final Look7 of 15
"Wrap the braid like a bun and anchor with bobby pins, then gently pull out pieces around the face to create a slightly disheveled look," says Cho. As for adornments, think subtle: "Add a floral hair pin to one side and tuck it slightly under the hair. The asymmetry will prevent the style from looking costumey." Complete the look with a lightweight hairspray.

Pretty Plaits8 of 15
"You need texture and volume for this Alberta Ferretti look," says Fabrice Gili, Frédéric Fekkai's creative director of the Melrose Place & Soho salons. "First, apply a mousse like Frédéric Fekkai Full Blown Volume Mousse to the roots of damp hair. Using a blow dryer, dry hair with your fingers to bring out the natural texture. If it's too polished, it'll look conservative, so it's best for the style to look a bit messy."
The Final Look9 of 15
"Part hair down the middle and gently pull hair back or leave a few wisps framing the face. Again, the part doesn't have to be perfect as the unevenness is what makes this look sexy," says Gili. "Next, create a loose braid at the nape of the neck and secure with an elastic. Finally, spray a small amount of lightweight hairspray in your hands and mess up the braid by slightly pulling at the strands." The result? A sexy, slightly undone look.
Smooth Move10 of 15
To get this sweet half-up style from Elie Saab's runway, start by creating a sharp middle part. "Divide hair into a triangle from the front of the forehead to just behind the ear, excluding the top portion of hair that will lie naturally," says Gili. "Then roll the section to the back of the head to form the first twist and gently pin underneath."
The Final Look11 of 15
Repeat on the opposite side and then pull twists together at the crown of the head, combining and securing with an elastic. "Lastly, use a single drop of Fekkai's oil to smooth the hair that's hanging down and push it behind the shoulders," says Gili.
Weave Around12 of 15
"This style, seen at Nicole Miller, is made for girls with long hair who want to pull it up into more than just a ponytail," says Gili. "Pull hair over to one side and create a loose braid just behind the ear, securing the end with a small elastic. Take the braid over the top of the head, keeping it closer to the forehead than the crown, and pin it behind the ear on the other side."
The Final Look13 of 15
Use your fingers to gently pull out a few strands. "This is an important step because if the braid is too tight or doesn't lay flat, it won't look easy and effortless," says Gili. "Finally, lightly mist the style with hairspray."
Get Twisted14 of 15
"Valentino's chic buns work great on clean or dirty hair and look stylish with a red lip," says Paves. "Make a bold center part on dry hair and brush hair thoroughly to avoid bumps. Loosely section the back into two sides, as if you were making low, loose pigtails. Starting on your left side, behind your ear, start twisting your hair at your scalp area. Be sure to allow the front of the hair to cover your ear, which helps the style look more fashion-forward. Continue twisting."
The Final Look15 of 15
"Once you reach the center of your nape, work on twisting your hair through to the ends. Then use a small elastic or bobby pin to secure together so it doesn't untwist while you work on the other side," says Paves. "Repeat the same steps on your right side, then grab both sections and twist them together until they start to collapse back onto the nape of your neck. Remove your previous fastener and replace with a small elastic to hold both sections as one. Roll your ends into the twist and secure with pins."
